    Today's deployments have seen greater responsibilities heaped on the shoulders of junior Noncommissioned Officers of the U.S. Army. These taskings have taken the average squad leader, normally responsible for equipment to the tune of a few million dollars, into a realm of accountability in excess of $40 million. Several of these squad leaders become convoy commanders of Heavy Equipment Transport crews. These leaders are not only responsible for their own equipment and their assigned personnel, but also for the equipment they are transporting, the contractors assisting them, and the timely delivery of cargo.
